Step 4: Cutting and Gluing 1/4" pieces

I cut four 5x5 inch pieces of 1/4" plwood that I could glue to the 3/4" to make the table thick enough to hold the legs.

Using a straight edge, I found the center points of each 5x5 square, and marked it with an X. This way, I knew where to center each bracket over the bonded plywood.

I roughed up the corners of the 3/4" plywood slab, and then anchored the 5x5 plates with glue. 

After clamping for 30 minutes, the glue was set.

What a cool idea!
I'd call the regular pliers &quot;bullnose&quot;
We couldn't remember what they were called! Thanks. <br /> <br />(As a joke, we started calling them wide-mouth pliers.)
We simply call them pliers, we get specific only if we need some other sort of pliers. When you go to the store to buy them, they are labeled slip joint pliers
reminded me of my bedroom. i have a wall covered in A3 paper that i use as a whiteboard (mostly reminders and rough sketches)
Ya.. and $60 for a set of legs seems crazy too. I love the idea, but this project is big budget for DIY.
